Bent at the double to sink Gunners

Published Add your comment

Arsenal's frustrating end to the season continued as Aston Villa ran out 2-1 winners at Emirates Stadium after an early brace from Darren Bent.

The Gunners are now in real danger of seeing FA Cup winners Manchester City overtake them in the race for automatic Champions League qualification after a third defeat in four games.

Bent struck twice inside the opening 15 minutes following more poor defending from Arsene Wenger's men, who saw referee Michael Oliver turn down a first-half penalty shout and ruled out a close-range header from substitute Marouane Chamakh before Robin van Persie bundled home a consolation, with boos ringing out around the ground at the final whistle.
